2016.11.16 - More Resorcinol Glue

Not a huge task done today, it is shopping day, so I contented myself with gluing the runners, or whatever they are called, to the cabin upstands. They have been in the house for the last 24 hours so they have probably reached room temperature. As always the mixing of the resorcinol is done by weight and we have a set of digital kitchen scales that do the trick nicely. The only problem is that I cannot mix up less than 23g of glue, 20 resin and 3 harder as the scales only read whole grams and not smaller parts.

The two up stands glued, screwed and clamped.

Although the join is a very close fit I decided to clamp it as well while the glue is setting and resorcinol likes high pressures.
